General: Fighting Talk: DAOC vs WAR

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,637MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

In his latest Fighting Talk column, MMORPG.com's Adam Tingle pits Dark Age of Camelot against Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. As Adam says, this week's column is new versus old, elderly versus snot-nosed. Which one of Bioware-Mythic's games will come out on top? Read on to find out! Let's get ready to RUUUUUUUUMBLE!

Since the creation of this series of versus articles, my life has changed. Just last week I made an almighty mess in the Kitchen when Tomato Ketchup faced down Barbeque Sauce; a few days previously I offended my girlfriend by forcing her breasts Into a Thunder Dome “two boobs enter, one boob leaves” type of affair. So to keep within my current mental state, here is another article offering my meager, inflammatory, and often mistaken opinions. Enjoy it you delicious bastards.

    not gonna read the article, i will clearly say war is not even or never will be on daoc's level of gameplay, war was a huge step down from daoc , that is all

  • LureeiLureei engelholmPosts: 31Member

    nice try but every1 that played daoc hated war because of the failsauce it was

    DAoC is dated visually, but still stands as one of the greatest MMO's I've ever played.

    Seems ironic that WAR came AFTER DAOC - if DAOC had been the successor with War's advanced graphic capabilities, we'd have a true winner on our hands today.

    So gameplay has equal weighting/importance to newbie experience mkay.

  • RevelRevel Fairfax, CAPosts: 100Member

    Doesn't even remotely resemble a competition. I'm afraid the WAR camp is going to be non existant. DAOC 2 please.

    This is THE Internet - since when does NOT reading anything NOT give us the right to rip it to shreds?!

  • OzmodanOzmodan Hilliard, OHPosts: 7,191Member Uncommon

    Not even a contest, DAoC wins hands down.  Better graphics do not a good game make.

    You don't have to even read the article because it is so blatantly obvious.

    haha beat me to it^^

    Velika: City of Wheels: Among the mortal races, the humans were the only one that never built cities or great empires; a curse laid upon them by their creator, Gidd, forced them to wander as nomads for twenty centuries...

    You know what they say about opinions.....

    I wont slam you for yours but 52-51? Sorry but War isnt even in Daoc league. IP issues aside mythic learned nothing about what made daoc great and avoiding none of what made it suck when they made War.

  • ericbelserericbelser buffalo, NYPosts: 783Member

    There are more problems with this than can be quickly listed.

    Just to start, comparing an ancient relic of a game with a relatively new release is just one of the bigger ones. Then talk about which DAoC you mean; pre-ToA, post, non-ToA, frontiers etc.

    Pretty silly comparison all around.

    Normally I would side with you  and agree with your ratings. However DAoC vs WAR is like putting  a hogtied poodle covered in A1 in a cage with a hungry lion. DAoC aside from graphics is a far superior product. Score should have been closer to 70-30.

    I agree with this, I like Warhammer but it realy should have come out more like 60-40 or a bit more.  Personally for PvP I'd give War a 7/10, but for endgame I would give it a 1/10, it is quite simply put the worst endgame I've ever seen.

    WAR end game 10/10?? LOL!

    It was the main reason most people left the game, the end-game is terrible!

    hahahahahahahahahahahah 10/10 Endgame? hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Sometimes a fight is just a waste of time and money because its too lopsided. Nice attempt at another fight, but its just too lopsided. Sad sad sad. Wish it was a close fight.

    Last time I played DAOC (2.5 years ago maybe?), the game felt very very old and archaic. Movement and control was bad. That said, it still has the best PvP system of any game I've ever played. I'd love to see a new RvR based MMO using 3 realms. Everytime I see a new MMO coming out and it has 2 sides, I just yawn and don't even want to hear anymore about it.

  • banshe13banshe13 aurora, ILPosts: 200Member

    this was to be a joke DAoC beats WAR so badly in every way besides grahpic's but I still think DAoC beats WAR in that as well.

    Um, the end game most people left doesn't exist any more, I wouldn't give the present end -game a 10/10 but it's a very different beast from what made people quit as soon as they hit 40 and looked up from the keyboard for a sec...

  • MesfenlirMesfenlir ovPosts: 208Member

    I am sorry to be rude but saying that WAR´S endgame is good is plain stupid.

  • MMOExposedMMOExposed lalal land, DCPosts: 6,257Member Uncommon
